Gospel Rally has come and gone. I think Arron Chambers is one of the best speakers I've heard in a while. Yea for the Whites and a Marty and the Hands for the lunch invite (remember folks, I cannot STRESS the importance of praying before you eat). Molly had a ball at the YMCA. I battled spring allergies and mustered my way through the ridiculously high alma mater. My students performed very well and it was a nice ceremonial moment when the Queen passed the baton to me on Friday morning for the group sing. I actually got a little teary because of the magnitude of the moment and how gracious she has been to me. Some people would be a jerk when they handed over the reins, but she has been a gem.
I did ask her if I could give her a crown and a "retired" sash like the beauty queens would wear but she wouldn't have it.
Now, I must convince myself to buckle down and complete all of my assignments for graduation in addition to mentally preparing myself for everything that has to occur between now and summer.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JASON BOSTIC!!!!!!!!!!
